Question about Videoseven V7 E17PS 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Settings My desktop has been shifted to a sideways orientation (I have 2 young boys who played with it). How can I get it back to normal? Is it a setting on the monitor itself (versus the CPU)? Please advise. Thanks.

Re: Settings

Typically its a function of your video card driver. If you look in the system tray (lower right hand part of screen you'll see several icons, one of which represents your video card drivers adjustments. However over each of them one at a time and a label will appear. When you find the video card right click on the icon and you should see a selection about rotation or screen orientation. If you can't find it let us know what video card you have installed and we'll try to help.

Screen has turned sideways

Right click on an empty spot on the desktop and scroll down to either the Nvidia or ATI control panel. Once you are in the control panel, look in the left hand pane and look for something that says, screen orientation or screen rotation. When you select that it may give you the orientation in degrees of a compass or rosary. Make sure you place the monitor orientation at "0" degrees. This will bring the screen back to normal.

Monitor displaying everything horizontally

Some monitors don't give orientation feedback to the video card to auto change the orientation when you move from a horizontal screen to vertical. what you need to do is get to display properties and advanced settings (right click desktop > properties > settings > advanced > video card settings > orientation) - you should find an option to change the orientation of the display - correct it accordingly. if the settings are not being saved after you restart, you need a video driver update - find it on your manufacturers website.

Computer screen

I bet you mean it has rotated. I have seen this before. The computer I did this on, while holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys you press one of the arrow keys to rotate the screen. Depending on the arrow key, determines how much rotation you want.

This might not be the solution you want. You did not provide enough information about your display adapter. It is the display adapter software that does this. You will need to go to your display adapter software to key the correct key bindings. I am not talking about the "desktop display settings". If you have an nvidia graphics card then it will be the nvidia graphics adapter software that you installed. Not the driver, but the software that allows you to tweak your graphics adapter.

My advise, use that software to rotate your screen to the correct orientation, then disable those key bindings.

Monitor display shifted offscreen

I would be carefull with refresh rates unless you know the maximum and minum rates to apply to your monitor. I solved this problem before for someone and what i recomen is to set your normal desktop to the same resulution as your computer games. That way when you leave your games or reboot it will be the same. See what is happening is when you play your games it is a higher resultion then your normal desktop. And when you log off from it your monitor has to re adjust to the old settings. This will cause a shift. By setting them both the same you will avoid this problem all together.

I don't think this is a problem with the monitor itself, it looks more like a setting within your display driver and I'm not sure what video card you are using! However you can try this 1.)Right click on your desktop and click properties 2.)Click on the Settings Tab 3.)Look for and click on the advanced Button 4.)go through all the tabs on this dialog and look for something that says "Rotation" there should be a setting for Normal or something. Set it to normal and press ok/Apply! Hope this helps! regards, babb

Desktop Orientation

Hello again T-Bear, First off before we try the hard way lets try the easy way: -Hold the Crtl and Alt keys down. -While continuing to hold them down press the Up arrow key once. If that doesn?t work -Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel -Find the System Icon and double left click on it. -Click on the Hardware tab. -Click on the Device Manager button. -In the Device Manager box that appears find the icon labeled Display adapters and click on the + symbol to the left of it. -Below that you will find at least one object, highlight it by left clicking on it once then right click on it and select properties. -Click on the General tab and the top line will tell you the name of the card and in parentheses, the name of the driver manufacturer. I need this info. Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate this post.
